    I recently stayed in Bazpackers and it absolutely made my stay in Inverness. The staff were so lovely and incredibly helpful. The kitchen facilities are AMAZING! The beds were comfy and all had curtains, reading lights and charging points. My favourite was the fireplace in the living room where people from all walks of life would sit to warm up, have tea, eat dinner and read books.

    The Bazpackers in Inverness is just great!! We’ve stayed there for three nights over the past couple of weeks. Everything looks very clean and neat. Both kitchens are well equipped, the bathrooms look modern and clean as well. There were towels for us to use and whenever we got there, there were some delicious biscuits waiting for us! Would definitely recommend this place :)

    A great hostel and value for the money! The beds were very comfortable and the staff great and accommodating. Ricardo at the front desk deserves all the praise one could give. Just check that your shower gives good hot water before you jump in!

    I had a great one night stay at short notice. I had made the booking for the wrong date by accident. I contacted reception to say I needed a room that night and Ricardo was super helpful. He made me feel that it was absolutely no problem and gave me a warm welcome when I arrived. This was the first time I had used Bazpackers and I will definitely visit again in future. Thank you.

    Great place. The staff was friendly and efficient. The rooms were amazingly comfortable. The heater did not work very well but the bedding was comfortable, the blanket was warm, and each bunk has a black curtain that allows for total darkness even if the lights are on in the room. Bathroom was clean and the plumbing worked quite well with good water pressure and temperature in the showers. Not a party hostel which is good as I could go to sleep early and wake up early without an issue.

    Bazapackers is right next to downtown but not in the middle, which makes it feel very quiet and cozy. It was very clean and the staff so helpful with check in and providing recommendations. A great place to stay in the lovely town of Inverness.

    This hostel has thought of everything. We found it extremely comfortable, clean and really liked the room layout. Plenty of space for your bags with plenty of tea and coffee. Very good value and would highly recommend especially if you’ve been hiking the trails.

    Super clean and quiet. Nice place to stay, but would not recommend it to solo travelers looking to meet people.

    We arrived and the heat was off in our room. We turned it on and left to go out to eat. When we returned even thought it looked like the heat was on it was not working. We literally froze overnight. Also the shower either had freezing or scalding hot water. When we went to the desk the next morning there was a sign that the hostel was permanently closed. I would like a full refund. Other than a safe place to sleep it offered little than that.
